A Year to Remember

A year has almost passed in to the beyond
Time of great upheaval and mayhem
Changes to so much of what had been normal
Adjusting to stay alive
In the midst of this all
Unbelievable grace has been bestowed
Old lives setting in the past at the drop of a ball
New chances with the rise of the sun in the east
Miracle of new life won out
With chubby cheeks and dark brown eyes
The announcement of another to come
What more could Grandma and Grandpa ask
A move on faith
That brings two back as one
Life is strange
In so much peril and scourge
Can the graciousness of God be seen
With all of that I still pray
That next year can go back to normal
Faces seen, hugs and handshakes

Upon the Waking Morning

Night time falls on me like an unwelcome guest

Sneaking darkness into my soul

Leaving my thoughts of you distressed

Slowly my mind slips into that blackhole

Thoughts of you permeate my mind

A longing to feel your body next to mine

The beauty of you I always find

Wanting to wrap around you and entwine

But all I find is that empty hole

Apart from you has left me distressed

Each of us must face the night alone

Our love at this time is suppressed

Until the day that I return

My soul is left in mourning

It’s your touch that I yearn

Upon the waking morning

Dreams

My life flies by
Life begun as an error
Lived without love
Seen as worthless, a mistake
No thoughts for the future
False hope with no dreams
Unable to draw close
Always a flight
Unsuspected connection was found
A dream come true I thought
My heart did matter to one
Mistakes of ignorance
Confusion with thoughts of delusion was made
Unable to properly give, unknown how to take
My dream almost slipped away
Unknown walls broken apart
Giving fully to one’s beautiful heart
Changes made within hope and faith
Life rebuilt, given a new start
A path opened for two
My dream was found complete in you!

Journey

Feet barely touching the ground
Time running in place flittering and fleeting
At this moment hardly a sound
Onto the next of life’s meetings

Settled into place
A flashing of a foreign decree
Surrounded by grace
Constantly I cannot see what’s ahead of me

Only in you myself is found
Connected and entwined as one
Forever we two are bound
Until my journey’s are done

Aurora Nights

Out in the clear skied night

Two tied souls look to the stars

Hearts entwined so tight

Thinking of each other from a far

A time soon to come

So much time apart

Uncertain of if their love has succumbed

Will they be able to restart

The heavens above a sign that it will take flight

Heavenly message given through Aurora nights.

I’m Back…..

Well hello all you out there in blog land, as you have noticed it’s been a while since I wrote. I’m on the mend and doing much better. My shoulder is healing good and getting stronger every day. This summer has been a long one and since I’m down here in Louisiana, a hot and humid one. I’m looking forward to moving back north. My days as a soldier are running down, so soon I will hang my boots up and be onto the next part of my life. Before then I have to deal with another birthday, it’s one of the big ones. I just want to thank everyone for their patience and their wishes and prayers for my healing. So today I reintroduce myself back into this world of blogging and say I have missed you all and look forward to hearing from you and reading all your amazing stories and poems. So off we go……..

A Father’s Joy

The sound of new life
A cry of such beauty
The miracle unfolds
She comes with 10 tiny toes
Blessing beyond compare
In a moment she is there
Taking my heart with her precious stare
Looking into our little wonder
That day so long ago
Our consecration of our love
Watching her grow from baby to child
From child to adolescent
Today she becomes an adult
From that first cry to her laughter so coy
She will always be her father’s pride and joy


Happy 18th Birthday Brianna….

Down for a bit!

Hello out there just wanted t say hello and let you know that I’m currently having to sit on the sidelines for a little while. I just had surgery on my right shoulder, had my rotator cuff repaired, had my bicep muscle moved and reattached and finally had part of my shoulder bone shaved back. I’m having to do everything left handed which has been an adventure in itself. Never realized how hard it is putting on your socks with one hand. Writing this has been an adventure. I will try to keep on reading and following your blogs as best I can. Thank you and God bless you all.
